Starting this new webcomic series because of a couple of reasons:
- To practice my drawing using simpler characters than, say, Leo’s Debut. Okay, I know they’re not that complex for most people who draw…just me though. ^^”
- I want to bring my childhood creation, le rottenapple-san (lol nope. It is actually still nameless to this day), to life. A shameless pat on my 12 or 11 year’s old’s back. XD
This particular one is inspired by a very handsome guy who often forgets about me (and himself too…to some extent). ^^”
Now, I know the font is a bit difficult to read…but I can’t help it!! No matter how much time I’ve used to find the right font tonight, this particular font just looks so darn cute to me! @__________@
Anyways, since I’m not confident with my skills to directly draw digitally yet, I would often make drafts with good old-fashioned pencil and paper. Once I’ve made the draft, I would scan it and then basically trace over it or at least use it to give me an idea on what to do next.
As seen from the above screenshot, I would typically have 3 layers (but honestly, can do with just two…it’s just that for some reasons having 3 layers makes me happier). You can see the draft is crappy (especially the “Teehee” girly panda character) and the two panels are too closed together. A draft is usually meant as a guiding point, unless if it’s a good day, then it serves as a trusty tracing template. Anyways, not that what I’m presenting is actually helpful for anyone who wants to become a serious webtoonist (and not a hobbyist like me), but just in case there’s anyone who ever wonders how I draw (or why I draw so badly….lmao XD).
